'How I bagged a Britten'

Britten owner and dedicated biker, Kevin Grant, bought his first bike aged 15, then got into racing and collecting bikes. How did you come to own a Britten?I picked it up in 1996, or '97, I think.

MCN rides the Britten V1000

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence. In many peoples’ minds it’s simply the greatest bike ever made. For me it transcends everything, it’s a dream bike, it was the poster bike I had ...

Ducati Multistrada: old vs new

In 2010 Ducati’s all new Multistrada turned the adventure market on its head. It was a breath of fresh air, the sportiest bike in the sector.

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong.

BMW R1200GS Rallye first ride

It's been a long time coming, but if any bike's deserving of a commemorative special edition model surely it's the BMW R1200GS. The class-defning German adventure bike has been a market leader throughout all its guises since the original and radical-for-the-time R80G/S of 1980. To celebrate that, and no doubt to encourage more sales of the current, ageing version before ...

Ben Gautrey 1992 -2011

I first met Ben in April 2010 at a cold and damp Mallory Park. I was at Mallory testing one of the new Aprilia 450 race bikes which Ben was competing on; Ben went on to win the Moto 450 Championship later that year. Despite the fact it was cold, damp, usual Mallory pre-season weather, Ben was excited, enthusiastic and ...
